Symphonie magnétophonique (2022)

A three part sound odyssey for transportation hub, public square, concert hall, electronic sound media, four soloists and electronics.

Symphonie Magnétophonique takes place in three different public spaces in central Oslo: a transport hub, a town square and a concert hall. The contrast between the noisy and social environment of these places and their different listening conditions is woven into the composition.

Wireless microphones concealed inside the instruments enable the audience, wearing headphones, to eavesdrop on a ‘secret’ soundscape. The contrast between the musicians’ presence in a social space and the headphones’ private listening sphere makes an extraordinary and unique experience.
